warning lights to alert aircraft . . .

Postby jk309 » Sun Mar 16, 2008 9:44 pm

i live in a 32-story building in queens. i recently noticed that there is NOT a flashing light on the roof to alert aircraft. i live less than a couple of miles from both LGA & JFK, and next to 4 highways, so planes, and news helicopters get very close.

i noticed that other local, smaller building DO have warning lights

does anyone know the legal criteria for having these lights and also who do i contact

thank you

Question
Who do I contact for information about lighting requirements for towers?

Answer
You may contact the Air Traffic Organization Obstruction Evaluation Specialist that services your area for information on marking and lighting of structures. Advisory Circular 70/7460-1K, Obstruction Marking and Lighting, describes the standards for marking and lighting structures such as buildings, chimneys, antenna towers, storage tanks, supporting structures of overhead wires, etc.

Yes, but what building height triggers the light requirement?

Because we want people to learn how to do it on their own and be self-sufficient.
